So there's this design contest for this certain maid/butler cafe. IDK why but I kinda really wanna win. XD :/ realistically I probably wont win (a buncha fashion nerds are my competition, lol) but I can still try! uploading to DA to hopefully receive some input and and suggestions for new themes (i wanna make a bunch of designs). this is just set 1 and 2. set 3 & 4 will be coming up as soon as I finish working out a color scheme! XD so yeah quality is kinda bad, the main point is the design concept. Ill go back and fix the favorite ones up later.
So I was bugged and harassed by a good friend of mine to make a Top Hat (5 in fact) that had cogs on it and well after sourcing a place that laser cuts metal and is able to do small cog and gear designs... I submitted my designs and started working. Also alot of thanks to my friendly hardware store that were very excited to see what I was doing with the bits and bobs (I think they think I'm a nutter ).
This feels like the first thing I've finished in too long, but really, it's only been a week. Either way, it's been a fair amount of angsting about something extremely trivial. Clearly the only answer here was to draw my therapy guy.
The flat-color-on-texture thing here was inspired by looking at *Stregatto10's line art, and the idea of putting Dalton in his sexy long coat again was because of *Makio-Kuta.
